I've had this schefflera for about a year now.
It's my first and only plant, and I am very ignorant about plant care.
For the first many months, it was doing great. Gave it water and sunlight
and it was happy.
But a few months ago I moved from PA to CO.
So my plant went about 1700 miles across the country in the back of an airstream.
Though I'm not taking care of it any differently now, it seems to be struggling.
It's losing leaves. Some of the leaves are turning lighter in color and eventually seeming
to dry out and fall off, some others have taken on an unusual wavy quality. And overall
the plant just seems more droopy and less happy than it used to.
I'm hoping that someone here who knows much more than me can tell me what the plant
is getting too much/too little of by the symptoms it has and educate me on how to get
it back to health.
A couple piece of background:
This plant is sort of a rescue. I noticed my roommate cutting it down one day and stopped her
and kept it for myself.
So it used to be a lot bigger on the top than it is now.
And I've wondered if maybe the pot that it's in is no longer big enough for the roots, and if it
maybe needs to be repotted?
The other thing is like I said, this plant took a LONG trip down the road to CO. I had it packed
in as best I could so there would be as little vibration as possible, but I've wondered if that couldn't
have caused a problem.
I don't know if it needs to be repotted, more or less water, etc.
If anyone has any advice on what may be causing these symptoms and what to do about
them I'd be grateful, thanks.
